(MARYVILLE, Mo.) Hundreds of fans lined up for a meet and great with the Northwest Missouri State football team at Bearcat Arena on Saturday in celebration of their Division II National Championship.

Fans received commemorative posters and limited addition perfect season footballs to be signed by every member of the Bearcats' 15-0 squad. For several players, it was the first time they'd been reunited with teammates since returning from the trip to Florence, Ala.

The National Championship trophy, along with the MIAA trophy, was on display after making its rounds throughout the western side of the state.

The trophy can also be seen on KQ2 as it stops by the studio later this week.
